(I play trumpet. The directors have split us up into brass, woodwinds, and percussion. In the brass section, one director is talking about decrescendos, when he accidentally mispronounces it and says “Dee-crescendo.” After he leaves, this happens between me and another trumpet player.)

Student: Did he say ‘dee-crescendo?’

Me: it’s ‘day-crescendo.’

(Me and Student in unison): “DAY-crescendo!”

Me(with Italian accent) It’s not ‘dee-crescendo,’ it’s DAY-crescendo!’

Student: I’m gonna give my sister [trombone player] so much crap with that.”
